Film Screening: The Refugees of Shangri-La

January 14, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

On January 14, 2016, the Cleveland Council on World Affairs and the Refugee Services Collaborative present a film screening of the documentary The Refugees of Shangri-La. In the shadow of the remote Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan’s lofty ideal of Gross National Happiness hide 107,000 refugees, who were pushed out of their country as their peaceful kingdom turned against them. After twenty years living in bamboo huts and barbed wire encampments in Nepal; the ‘Refugees of Shangri-la’ break a solution-less cycle and brave a new course… to seek a future in a place called America.

Councilman Joe Cimperman will lead a question and answer session following the film.

Registration is now closed. This event is sold out.
